Fish Oil Supplementation May Reduce Breast Cancer Risk?
A recently published study (July 2010) following over 35,000 postmenopausal women living in the USA found that the use of daily fish oil supplementation reduced the risk of ductal breast cancer (not lobular). Women who had been using fish oil for over 10 years experienced the greatest benefit. The authors concluded that fish oil may be inversely related to breast cancer risk, but they say additional research is required to further investigate the mechanism by which fish oil may protect against breast cancer.
